The Method Gun
“Immensely funny, abruptly touching physical-theater work .... They keep taking perilous theatrical leaps, but we are the ones to feel sweaty-palmed, nearly vertiginous exhilaration.” —Time Out New York
A gleefully raucous piece about the ecstasy and excesses of performing, The Method Gun uncovers the life of the fictional Stella Burden, actor-training guru of the 1960s and ‘70s. Burden’s technique, “The Approach,” was known as the most dangerous acting technique in the world, merging Western acting methods with risk-based rituals in order to infuse even the smallest role with sex, death, and violence. Set amid swinging pendulums and talking tigers, this daring, absurd, and heady exploration of the creative process is a tour de force by these Texas-based theater rebels.
